Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2001 Nissan Maxima Owner Comments

problem #2

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,100 miles


Just had the car serviced at 60,000 miles at our local repair shop. Then the Service Engine Soon light came on so we took it to a Nissan repair shop. They said we need new catalytic converter, 2 oxygen somethings, etc. for $1,400. We said we'd think about it. Drove away with the light now off. Went back to our local repair shop who said they couldn't find anything wrong and to not worry about it as the light is now off.

** We don't know which version to believe. Please help if you can!

Overall the Maxima runs great.The service engine light keeps coming on for no reason. The car has been tuned and everything. Maybe Nissan needs to check out the problem.
